A memorable concert trip to Nellore - 04 Sep'08

Concert in a temple ambiance is always great and for this Vinaya chathurthi i had the opportunity to perform for Vidhya Vinayakar Temple, Nellore owned - maintained by Sri Sankar uncle. It was indeed a great trip with Pakala Jayaprakash anna on violin, Thillasthanam Suri uncle on Mrudhangam and Hari anna on Ghatam & Morsing. Special thanks to Balu uncle, Gurukal of the temple who had bought a cassette of my first volume 1 in Chennai and requested Sankar uncle to organise our concert.

All started with the car driver Sri Jaffer who was so good as person and also in his driving. What a reception we had in Sankar uncle's house! I can tell you it was one of the best with the entire family moving with all of us in a nice way. Hard to find people like this and yes! we cannot always ask for it too! After having a sumptuous food we relaxed for some time and then visited Sri Ranganatha Temple. We enjoyed the Pennar river side and the idly and bajji stall nearby.

The mini concert inside the temple was filled with divine vibrations and it followed for the concert outside the Temple premises too. Large audience turnout with presence till the end is one of the things we cannot expect every where. A memorable trip in all aspects and we all look forward to a good relationship with the entire family and friends in Nellore.

Today it was indeed surprise for my appa & amma. They had visited a temple with a wedding hall and on hearing a good presentation of Nadaswaram from outside went in to the hall to appreciate them. To their surprise the vidwan showed my card which i had given him at Nellore and my parents also remembered them who were performing just before we went in to the temple. Small world indeed!!
